London, 1818: a secret love affair begins between 23 year old English poet, John Keats, and the girl next door, Fanny, an outspoken student of fashion. This unlikely pair started at odds; he thinking her a stylish minx, she unimpressed by literature in general. It was the illness of Keats’ younger brother that drew them together. Keats was touch by Fanny’s efforts to help and agreed to teach her poetry. Together they rode a wave of romantic obsession that deepened as their troubles mounted. Only Keats’ illness proved insurmountable. Directed by Jane Campion. 2010 Academy Award Nomination for Costume Design.
